From TSN: The Minnesotan is considered one of the fastest skaters in the draft and that's a quality the scouts look for in today's game. One team, for example, has him rated in their top 10 prospects, so the chances of being selected much higher than 21 definitely exist. But persistent questions about the extent of his hockey sense – one scout said his brain doesn't work quite as fast as his feet – also suggest he could tumble to the lower part of the first round.
From NHL Central Scouting: Jake's biggest attribute is that he might be one of the best skaters in the draft – he is just a pure skater. He is smart with the puck, unselfish and he's careful. He's a greyhound right now, wiry, but he'll fill out.
